About She Said He Said

Eli and Josie, friends since college, realized how lucky they were to have one another—an honest friend of the opposite sex who tells it like it is. They wanted to share that with the world and so www.shesaidhesaid.me was born.


  1. This happened to me after college; my long term boyfriend decided he needed space. He actually told me he wasn’t sure he loved me anymore. A couple weeks later, he changed his mind. He was devastated when I told him it was over. I just could never get my head back into the same space. My feelings changed forever in those 2 weeks.

  2. Agemaki says:

    It happened to me too. My boyfriend just told me that he wasn’t attracted to me anymore. The breakup came as such a shock. It was as though I hadn’t really known him at all (he’d given no prior indication of wanting to break up). After a few weeks had passed I wasn’t the same person anymore and I realized that he wasn’t the person that I had thought he was. Looking back on it I’m glad it ended and I think that I should have ended it sooner. But I don’t think our relationship had been all that fulfilling so it’s probably a different scenario.

  3. During the summer before my senior year in college, I met a guy (rather accidentally). I thought that he looked kind of sissy. (I was leaning down looking into his car.) A few weeks later, he called and asked me out. I said ‘yes,’ but started dreading the date. When he came to my door, I thought ‘Who is this good-looking guy?’ We went for pizza, he brought me home, and said goodnight. I didn’t hear from him for a couple of months. One day at college, he drove by as I was walking home from the store. (He told me later that he was looking for me.) We started dating steadily (although he didn’t ask me to be his steady) for the next few months. Then, out of the blue, one night he told me that we needed to date less, that he needed a little space. I said ‘fine.’ This was Sunday night. On Wednesday, he was at my door. He told me later that by the time he had gone back to his car, he had realized that he had made a mistake and then was afraid that I wouldn’t want him back. I acted as if nothing had happened. We ended up dating for three years before marrying. This June, we will celebrate our forty-seventh anniversary! Love is great.
